   Oct-22-17 Iuri Shkuro
dumbgai: <MikhailGolubev> Perhaps he doesn't deserve such attention, but it could be entertaining for Mr. Shkuro to be thrown into a tournament with his 2800+ peers such as Grischuk, Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian, etc. Much in the same manner that Mr. Crisan played in tournament with real ...
   Oct-22-17 J van Foreest vs B Adhiban, 2017
dumbgai: The critical move comes after black's 15...Na5. Black threatens both Nxc4 winning a pawn, and Nb3 forking the queen and rook. White could have stopped this with simply 16. Bxh6 but he decided to get cute and try to trap the black queen with Nh4. Black navigates the tactics ...

dumbgai: Yildiz's only win vs Hou.
   Oct-12-17 Ivanchuk vs Kasparov, 1991 (replies)
dumbgai: Impressive from Ivanchuk, it's rare that you see Kasparov get steamrolled like this.
   Oct-04-17 Khalifman vs D Yuffa, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: The draw should be quite easy after Rxb4. At some point if white wants to win he will need to move his pawns, and after exchanging down black will always reach a drawn endgame since his king is well placed.
   Sep-26-17 E McCormick vs H Rolletschek, 1987 (replies)
dumbgai: 46...Rg7 unpins the black queen and also threatens mate with Rh1. If white plays Kh2 to prevent Rh1, black can now play Qe5+ with mate next move since the queen is no longer pinned. White can avoid immediate mate with e5 but black simply takes Qxd7 and is 2 rooks up.

dumbgai: Sometimes the kibitzing here reads like a YouTube comments section.
   Sep-21-17 W So vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
dumbgai: Very instructive demonstration of the winning technique in Q vs R. After 61...Kh4 white has no good moves. Kg1 gets him quickly mated, while any rook move allows black to start a series of checks that lead to a decisive fork with the queen. In the final position black wins the rook ...
   Sep-21-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
dumbgai: <Classical games: Ding Liren beat Levon Aronian 3 to 0, with 3 draws. Including rapid/exhibition games: Ding Liren beat Levon Aronian 3 to 0, with 4 draws. Only rapid/exhibition games: Ding Liren tied Levon Aronian 0 to 0, with 1 draw.> Based on past results Ding has a great ...
   Sep-19-17 W So vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
dumbgai: Probably saw that it was +1.4 on chessbomb whereas the move played resulted in a draw. Therefore it's easy to say he missed a win. But after evaluating at greater depth (d=24) it now says +0.8 on chessbomb. Even 24 isn't deep enough to say for sure though. It's certainly nowhere ...
